 Tennessee Tiramisu 

1 ½ c (12 oz) mascarpone cheese, room temperature

5 T sugar

½ c heavy cream, whipped

Zest of 1 lemon, finely grated

1 (16oz) frozen all butter pound cake, sliced 3/4" thick

1/3 c Jack Daniel Tennessee Whiskey

2 c strawberries, thickly sliced

Grated chocolate, to garnish top

Whisk mascarpone with sugar until sugar is dissolved.  Fold in whipped cream and lemon zest.  Set aside. 

In a 8" square glass pan or ceramic baking dish line bottom of dish with cake slices flat on the bottom; cut cake to fit if necessary.  Brush cake slices lightly with ½ whiskey.  

Spread layer of mascarpone mixture over cake (saving enough for another layer later); top with sliced strawberries over mascarpone mixture.  Repeat layers beginning with cake slices brushed with whiskey and ending with strawberries.

Cover and refrigerate for at least 3 hrs or overnight.  Before serving sprinkle with grated chocolate curls.  Cut into pieces and serve.

Serves 8.
